RULE #ONE

 

 

ALWAYS view a potential property onsite – NEVER just from the road.  This 154 acre property is a prime example – and I almost made the mistake myself, doing a drive-by to begin with.  This place has Location, Location LOCATION!, with spectacular views, but you’ve got to be on it to see it!  Located just (JUST!) outside of Mora, with delightful views up and down the valley.   Choose a private timbered setting, or stay a bit lower in the valley – either way you go, you win.   Nicely shaped, this parcel looks to be about 1/3 big open meadow, 2/3rd forested, running from the Mora Valley floor to the top of the ridge overlooking the valley.  The breadth of potential here is big -Ranch? Horse farm? Commercial?  All viable with the great access on Hwy 94 and proximity/visibility of Mora. Big cottonwoods and a wetland at the bottom gives you a variety of terrain and ecosystems to play with.

How Lucky Can You Be?

If you’re lucky enough to buy this place, you’re pretty dadgum lucky!  It’s  spectacular, from every perspective.  Gorgeous, accessible, remote, quiet, with stream, pasture, an old restorable adobe, incredible views… I could go on, but if the sound of this appeals, don’t wait, k?  When I’m as excited about a property as I am about this one, I tend to sell it quickly…

Offered in three ways – as a whole, at 320 acres for $570,000.  As two separate pieces, one on the west side of the road with 227 (estimated) acres for $283,750, and the parcel on the east side of the road at 93 (estimated) acres for $325,500.  As you can see, the seller is motivated to sell as a whole…

The east side of the road is primarily pasture, smattered with cottonwoods, stream frontage and most amazing forested slopes up to the powerful rimrock.  It includes the adobe structure and the framework of a great old barn.

                                          ALTOGETHER:  320 ACRES FOR $570,000

                                                93 (ESTIMATED) ACRES AT $325,500

The west side of the road is it’s own amazing place.  Entirely different from the east, it’s terraced grassy benches rise up to a plateau, and then undulate up to the high point at the rear.  Incredible rock ridges separate the benches, making every turn step you take an adventure into what’s next.  The views of the rimrock and the valley are stunning.   Many building sites that offer great privacy…

Swearing off…

I swore I wouldn’t take another remote mountain listing, but then I remembered that swearing got me to where I am today, happily tootling the mountains of Northern NM…  So here I am again, with an almost 200 acre parcel of rugged mountain ground in Trumbull Canyon, just north of Mora, NM.  Tall pines, fir and oak populate this property, along with diverse wildlife – and not much else. It’s wonderful to be alone out here – so quiet, and with a night sky people in cities would pay to see.   Running from the valley floor to the tops of rocky mountain ridges, this nicely proportioned property lends itself to privacy for you and yours.  2 miles from the highway, you’ll want 4 wheel drive to assure yourself of access in bad weather.  No utilities here (that’s one of the features that makes it remote!)

Mountain Cottage (Updated 6/18 with new pics!)UNDER CONTRACT!

‘Realtorspeak’ lesson of the day – cozy means small, right?  Yes, that, but it also connotes warmth, charm, and intimacy.  This cottage is all of the above, plus it’s light and bright, compact but efficient, in a lovely tall forest setting.  If you squint you can see one neighbor, which is a pretty good deal on a just over one acre lot!   Hang out on the covered deck and enjoy the views and the idea that there isn’t much to maintain – certainly not a yard!   Extremely well thought out and executed, you’ll be pleased with the very apparent pride of ownership here.

As always, stocked fishing creek at the entrance to the subdivision is open to the public – walk down and catch supper!

Affordable!  3.3 acre lot at the back of La Vista Verde subdivision, up high on the mountain.  This baby is relatively flat – though the road getting there is definitely not!  Forested, with views, and lots of different building spots.  La Vista Verde is immediately across the road from Coyote Creek State Park, and just downstream from the Harold Brock public fishing area.  Come enjoy the cool breeze and listen to those pines rustle – pure magic!

Man Cave, She Shack…SOLD!

…writers retreat, artist studio, or……   No matter who you are or what you do, when you wanna get away, you wanna get away!   Here’s an affordable hidey hole in the woods, all ready for you to come and get away to.  Teensy tiny unfinished cabin in the forest.  Been used for years ‘as-is’, and you can too, or, you could have some fun and easily finish this out as a sweet get away.  12X15’ish  wood framed cabin is insulated, has big windows, and not only a wood stove, but twin bed sized platforms and it’s very own outhouse too…. Special! 😉

Power runs across the front of the lot – previous owners had a couple of solar powered lights, but doubtful the system works anymore (but it’s there, if you want to try it!).  Totally affordable getaway on 1.38 wooded acres.  As always, Sierra Bonita residents have easy access to public fishing at the base of the subdivision – and Angel Fire with golfing and skiing are only 30 minutes away!
